Vulpiano Records

Marilyn Roxie

Vulpiano Records was launched in November 2009 by synth musician Marilyn Roxie, initially as a place to house great unsigned and independent artists they had come in contact with through networking in the music blogosphere. The concept behind Vulpiano is simple: to offer quality free music. Genres we specialize in are ambient, electronic, and acoustic. All artists are linked by their spirit of independence and experimentation. We hope you enjoy and share the music. Are you a music blogger, podcaster, or film-maker looking to feature a Vulpiano track in your content non-commercially? You can utilize any of the tracks in the Vulpiano library free for streaming or download as long as you credit the artist!

I tried to put maximal honesty and sincerity in The Leave of Leaves and to create music I want to listening to. Without any allowances.

During two working months the overall concept was changed so many times, that I’ve finally realized there’s no need for it.

Aseptic Void - Carnal (VULP-0045) is out now. Italian multi-instrumentalist Davide T, known here as Aseptic Void, has followed up their previous Vulpiano Records EP Alone with an impressive continuation of dark themes and masterful use of static, haunting spaces in their music, including silence. "The theme of the album is the flesh and abominations of the concepts of limit. A black hole of anti-identity in which to get pleasantly lost. The truth of the flesh is multifaceted."

It unravels slowly in its title track opener with sounds recalling nature, looping and enveloping, repetition morphing into change, and — later — voices. Spring-like and peaceful.

VULP-0023 is British synth pop/rock artist J.G. Hackett's third album, Trans-Racial-Impression. In an era of exciting electronic experimentation combined with nods to retro synth styles, this album not only fits in but goes more than a little beyond expectation. With catchy beats and rhythm (State of Flux, Too Many Times) appearing alongside more harrowing numbers (Johnny Drank His Own Future) and truly stand-out tracks that deserve repeating, the previously highlighted Dereliction and moving...

Homecoming from King Elizabeth on Vulpiano Records (VULP-0030) is an epic intro to this one-man band from the UK. With influences from post-punk greats like Joy Division and the Associates to psychedelic-tinged music like The Doors and The Stone Roses, listening to King Elizabeth provides not only a complete listening experience, but into the beyond as well. Homecoming is pulled from forthcoming album Obsessive Desires, plus the single release includes b-side Faith.

(VULP-0055) The second single pulled from J.G. Hackett's The Sins of Science , Shadow Torture is a stand-out track from the release, grandiose and somehow pretty and fragile at the same time, perhaps because of the lyrical content and intent behind the song. Hackett says: "This piece reflects on the difficulties of coping with internal pain and anxiety while trying to maintain an outer aura of competence - "I want nothing more than a stable mind, tired of waiting for justice."...

Storm and Urge (VULP-0031) is the new EP release from Lately Kind of Yeah. These three tracks call up an atmosphere like that depicted on the cover: isolated in a clean, uncluttered room, you find yourself both comforted and unsettled. Your mind wanders and then you remember where you are again, just as the music is over. And then you begin again.
